 An Evening With...

In The Soul's Code, James Hillman suggested that each of us develops as an individual from a soul ‘blueprint,’ much as a tree sprouts and grows from an acorn.

This process can be seen most clearly through several types of exceptional people: those who are autistic, savants, child prodigies, synesthetes (people with overlapping senses), and individuals who are psychically gifted.

In this program, we’ll explore the developmental trajectory that produces such exceptional people – and consider how it illuminates the path we all take from the mysterious 'seed ground’ of being.

Michael Jawer, is  an author, Psychology Today blogger, and public speaker. His work focuses on the nexus between emotion, personality, and spirituality. His articles have run on science websites (Aeon, Nautilus, Scientific American) and in magazines such as Spirituality and Health. He has presented to the Jung Society of DC, the American Psychological Association, and several area universities. Two books of Jawer’s have been published (The Spiritual Anatomy of Emotion, Your Emotional Type), with a third set to be published next year (tentatively titled Sensitive Soul).
